Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg says Spurs squad need to follow Kane and Son's lead

Spurs midfielder, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, has said the rest of the squad needs to follow the lead of Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son if they’re to be successful.

Hojbjerg scored and set one up at Spurs saw off Wolves this weekend. It was an assured performance from Ryan Mason’s men, who have adopted a more attacking approach in recent weeks.

But despite the upturn in some performances lately, the Danish midfielder believes Spurs’ players need to be on it all of the time. And he pointed towards Kane and Son as shining examples.

“If you want to be part of the big players, the big teams and big finals this is what you have to do. You have to be on it every single day. You don’t have to reach the limit every single day but your mind has to be there with the best, with the hardest work, with the top, top players if you want to be a part of it,” Hojbjerg told the Evening Standard.

“This is what I really like about these guys now. Harry, for example, has been so consistent in this behaviour, so consistent in his work rate and it is not a coincidence he is one of the best players in the world. Sonny worked so hard but he didn’t get an assist or goal [against Wolves] but he worked as hard as he does and he is more important than ever.”

Kane and Son have, at times, carried this Spurs squad this season. However, recently the likes of Gareth Bale and Dele Alli have stepped up their efforts.

Whoever the new manager is will be relying on big performances from those players regularly.

TBR View: Kane and Son are brilliant…but so is Hojbjerg

The Danish midfielder is probably doing himself a disservice by just mentioning Kane and Son here. In all honesty, he should be a shining example for his teammates.

He is unspectacular, but is so effective at the same time. If anything, he is the one who this Spurs squad should be looking to as leader.
